On-tap at Bertha's in Baltimore, served in an imperial pint glass. The bar tender indicated that this was the house beer always on tap and in a cask.
The beer was a hazy dark orange color, with a nice, light off white head that dissipated too quickly, but expected given that it was from a cask. The beer gave off a nice biscuit aroma with a hint of citrus. The taste is what I expected from an English Pale, nice and malty, with that hint of biscuit, earthiness and citrus. Very well done. The beer had a great feel to it, a nice moderate feel to it, again given the lack of carbonation from the cask. The beer was extremely easy to drink and I could drink them all day. Overall, this was a great beer and the next time that I am in Baltimore, I will be stopping at Bertha's for a pint or two.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Hazy orange appearance and color. Doesn't have a particularly strong smell, but nothing offensive about it. The beer drinks very smoothly, and is a Baltimore staple. Would recommend, but as a safe local standby. There are better beers in Baltimore, but you can't go wrong with this local favorite.

Some slow bubbling activity keeps up a creamy, foamy sort of off-white head to rest at a consistent and well-retained half finger over a bright pale orange brew. Deposits of mixed spots and patches of lacing stick to the glass in a more than moderate quantity.
There seems to be a mix of American and English character here. Earthy and herbal quality mingle with a fairly obvious caramel malt, and there's a certain muskiness as well. There's a fruity element, a bit in the smell and more on the tongue, with a touch of toast and, more in the taste, a hint of citrus.
The body is light, verging on medium, and there's a tea-like quality to the English aspect that I think some attribute to the the mouthfeel but doesn't have quite that kind of impact. It does lack depth to a point, but it's a pretty good mouthfeel overall, bright and crisp and clean.
